City of Bree
Bree is a small Belgian city with an ancient history: in 2007 we celebrated our 1.000th anniversary. Our historical and cultural strength is still visible in the well preserved historical buildings from the prosperous 17th century.
Bree is an important local city in the Northeast of theprovince of Limburg (one of the 11 provinces of Belgium) and centrally located in Europe. Bree borders on the Netherlands and Germany is very nearby.
Bree has a lot to offer to its tourists, shoppers and sightseers. Especially our natural park, covering a green and silent area which even passes the country border in Weert (Netherlands).
Bree is mostly known for its active industry, small and medium companies, services, local shopping and cafés and restaurants.
Furthermore Bree is world famous thanks to Kim Clijsters, one of the best tennisplayers in the world. Kim was born and raised in Bree, and still lives here.
We are proud to welcome you in our historical and charming city. We hope that you will have a good time and will make friends, to come back again!
Liesbeth van der Auwera
Mayor of Bree
